Semi Conversion

We have a 2017 NRC MOD truck conversion and love every minute of driving it. It is a 600hp Cummings, 13 speed Ultra Shift transmission with a twin screw rear and 18,000 lb. front axle. It is smooth and drives like a dream, the wind has little effect on drivability! At age 72 I am most likely on my last R.V., but this is the best one we've had!

X2 for NRC MOD coaches!

'Amen" for the NRC MOD coaches! We love our NRC, and its floor plan fits us perfectly. It is rock-solid on the road, and provides comfort and safety, in motion or parked.

Our unit has been called a “Super-Duper C” RV in several posts elsewhere. There are not a lot of these type of units out there. I believe that NRC produces around 6 or 7 coaches per month, on average. Some would call it a "toterhome," but it has no rear deck for hitching a 5th wheel or gooseneck trailer. We are the second owners.

As requested, here’s a description and specs of our unit:

2008 NRC 45-Foot ”Super-Duper C” Motorhome on 2007 Freightliner Columbia Chassis

RV Section is 34’ and the BBC measurement is 10’, so roughly a total of 45’ overall.

DRIVETRAIN AND CHASSIS SPECS:

Engine-- 2006 (Pre-Emissions) Detroit 14L Series 60 Engine, 515HP & 1650 Ft/Lbs Torque

Transmisison-- ZF Meritor Freedomline 12-speed Dual-Mode Automated Manual

Rear Axles-- 40,000 Lb rated Tandem Detroit DA-RT w Airliner Air-Ride

Rear Axle Ratio-- 3.42 (yielding 1400 RPM @ 64MPH)

Wheelbase: 340”

GVWR-- 54,000 Lbs.

WABCO 4S-4M ABS Brake System

Twin 100-gallon fuel tanks

Hitch Rating-- 40,000 Lbs

MPG so far-- around 10.0 (we also run the 12KW generator off the fuel tanks, so it is approximate....)

Total Miles on Unit (so far) per Odometer-- 109,800

RV SECTION SPECS:

102" Outside Width w Total Body Skeleton of 1.5” x 1.0” welded steel tubing

One road-side "Super Slide" w recliners and Dinette

Queen bed in rear BR

Heated Ceramic Tile floor

Ceramic Tile Residential-Size Shower

Heated Water tanks (200 Gal Fresh + 100 Gal Gray and 100 Gal Black)

30-Gallon LPG, mounted inboard

All coach windows are dual-pane, w day-night shades.

I hope this helps give you more info in these great coaches. I'd post a photo, but so far I have not been successful doing that on this site........

Travel Free!
